After 8 years, what do you take away from this generation?

This generation marked the moment when company got greedy, and started draining more and more.

It's all crumbling right now. Big company needs to stop expecting 10 million sales for every game, and just make MORE game rather than bigger games. I'd rather more games made that are similar, than to get 1 game every 3 years that's ''ok''.

Skyrim is a prime exemple. It's a fun game, but they we're expecting too much from it, with too little work. Buggy, boring story, and I could go on for hours.

i've learned that because gaming isn't just for nerds now, games that are made for nerds almost nearly extinct

RIP open-ended content-packed pc-style rpgs, i will never forget you.

EDIT: on a positive note, this generation has given indie developers a huge amount of attention. back in the day you only heard about an indie game if you friend told you about it. now they're all over the place.

DLC sucks. Aside from that, good gen. Lots of great games and new IPs. If DLC did not plague us, it would be a golden age to me.

Gamers as a whole are highly opinionted and selfish

That';s sadly false.

I read that somewhere before, but it made sense to me.

The gamer that are whining, in general, are the ones we hear about, tho that are having fun usualy don't get on forums to talk about games all that much. A lot of nice gamer are out there, just buried under the crazy ammount of bad ones.

That, and most pvp games like lol , or the whole fps genre are full of people who enjoy feeling superior to others, wich leads to them mostly being pretty horrible people.

If they make a game good enough, I will cave and buy DLC, even though I'm not a fan of the idea.

Exhibit A: Mass Effect Trilogy

we can keep pretending the Mass Effect series sucked, sure.


Just like we can keep pretending Bioware still makes good games?

You know that sound a police siren makes when a police car passes you and fades as it travels further away? That fading effect is akin to the quality of Mass Effect games from the first to the third
